Regular tour

We speak your language:

Depart Krakow for a confronting day of reflection with a visit to the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp complex. Undoubtedly, it is a solemn place that leaves a lasting impression on all visitors, and an important memorial to the victims of the extermination.

Funded by the Nazi party in 1940, Auschwitz-Birkenau became both a symbol of human suffering and a witness to physical and emotional exhaustion. As the largest concentration camp operated by the Nazis, it became the final resting place for millions of people, mostly Jews, put to their death in the hideous gas chambers.

Visit the museum and memorial in the suburbs of Oświęcim, about 60 kilometers west of Krakow. Upon arrival, approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes later, meet a professional guide who will show you around the site and speak of its dark history.

Pass through the gate with the inscription “Arbeit macht frei” to enter Auschwitz I, where your guide will show you around the preserved area and explain the history of this place. Then, visit the second camp at Birkenau, where mass killings took place as part of the Nazi “Final Solution to the Jewish Question.” Spend about 1 hour at the Birkenau camp, before meeting your driver for the return journey to Kraków.
